Some of the most amazing sites, historic remnants and preserved natural wild-lands are accessible by foot on several of the Apostle Islands. On these tours we boat directly to the island of interest for the designated hike and then allow plenty of time to explore the trail. Sometimes, hiking an island can be good option island archipelago experience when it is too windy for kayaking in the sea caves. Or consider adding time to one of our standard tour to include a hike. All tours require a 4 person minimum so sometimes it is hard to match people together for hiking tours because of the variety of options, so we have weekly group hikes offered several times throughout the year.
Sand Island- Lighthouse, Caves & Historic Remnants – 4-mile out and back trail, 4-5 hour $120 per person
Description: Easy. This hike begins at the campground dock and then starts a board trail, which eventually turns to dirt but it is all an easy stroll hike to the light-house grounds.In a few places along the trail there are remnants of a distant past when the island was a booming small farm and fishing community in the early part of the 1900’s. Bonus that you get to see the Sand Island sea caves!
Devils Island- Lighthouse and Caves – 2-mile out and back trail, 4 hours – Not available, boat dock out of commission.
Description: Easy. It is a steep hill from the dock up to the hiking trail, but then an easy
1-mile hike from the south end of Devils to the lighthouse grounds on the north end.
The forest has special dwarfed features due to harsh conditions so far out. There is the
bonus that you will get to see the Devils Island sea caves! And if conditions permit, we
will pull the boat into a cave!
